Spring/Summer 2012 Baby Bumps!

How is everyone??

Good Morning ladies!!!  How is everyone feeling?  I'm feeling pretty terrible.  Each day is an up and down roller coaster.  I feel really bad but I told DH this might be our one and only.  He keeps telling me no but then last night when he asked me to wash the dishes and I just laid on the sofa he came and sat next to me and goes "your right...this may be the only one!"...lol.  I felt really bad but I physically just couldn't do anything.  I hate feeling this bad.  It's not even a specific it's just BLAH and not myself.  I'm prone to depression and i'm not on my meds right now because my dr, my DH and I all agreed that I need to be drug free throughout this pregnancy.  But it's hard.  And feeling sick doesn't help.


I think with it being so early in the pregnancy and not being able to tell anyone is hard because i'm not feeling well and not very friendly (my poor students) but the only thing i enjoy doing is sleeping because i feel half way decent.  I think i'm just having an internal freak out moment of thinking i'll never feel normal again!  LOL...

I'm surviving...that's about all I can say at this point. I feel sick ALL the time. It doesn't matter what I eat or do. I can't sleep well at all and I have zero energy. It's starting to take a huge toll emotionally and mentally as well. I cry several times a day because I just can't stand feeling this way. DH isn't helping much because he just doesn't seem to get that for whatever reason this pregnancy is a million times worse than the last one.


I do know that I'll feel normal again as I've done this before, but it's not helping much to know it. I wish I could just fast forward to April. I'm that miserable.

Oh gosh, I feel so guilty... I hardly have any symptoms at all. My boobs are definitely already getting bigger but I only feel a little bit of an ache when I take my bra off. sometimes I get AF type cramps but nothing crazy.
No ms. yet...
The worst thing I feel is tired because I am not getting good sleep. I just feel uncomfortable and too hot at night so I am tossing and turning the whole time. I am generally a terrible sleeper (light sleeper with frequent bouts of insomnia) so I have been managing and not too bothered because I always feel like that. blah..
I am so grateful I don't have the symptoms you guys have but I feel a little bit afraid too. Like it means the pregnancy is not progressing the way it should or something...
I hope you guys feel better soon. It will be worth it in the end. :)

It gets better I promise ladies!  I had awful m/s and was just cranky about the whole pregnancy thing (I want to sleep without peeing 1,000 times, I want to sleep on my back, I want a BEER!) BUT we just found out our lil bean is a boy and seeing him move around on the u/s and the fact that we made him is so crazy!!!  Makes what I went through and going through so worth it!


Now it's the fun part of shopping and planning the room!

The m/s really hit me at 5.5 weeks...at 6.5 weeks I asked for meds and now i'm 7.5 weeks and feeling better off and on.  Today is a better day...but I swear I make myself car sick while driving...lol.

Awww I truly feel for you ladies. I know you know this and have heard it before.....and it doesn't really make you feel all that much better........but it does get easier. And before you know it you'll be feeling great again. I was MISERABLE from week 6 - 12 so I know your pain. 


@onetxjewel I also told DH this would be our one and only as I didn't think I could go through this again when I was feeling so awful (I actually prayed for twins for this exact reason LOL!). But now I'm through it I can understand why many many women end up going on to have more kids even with terrible symptoms and all! Because it was 6 weeks of hell for me but I'm going to get a baby for that torture....and I beleive it's all going to be worth it in the end.

onetxjewel- I am sorry you are feeling so crappy. And add being a teacher onto that and it makes it even harder!!! I just made the 7th week mark with out a lot of symptoms but I think they are slowing starting to sneak up on me. I have noticed that if I dont eat as soon as I am hungry I start to feel really nauseous. I just hope it doesn't get worse because it is kinda hard to tell a group of 3rd graders that I need to rest because I don't feel well. And I totally agree....I have NO energy. I am ALWAYS tired...more tired than I have ever been in my life. May the rest of this first trimester go quickly for all of us.

I'm scared of getting morning sickness!! I'd be happy with the fatigue, the hunger, anything but the m/s. Yikes!


G8R~My symptoms are just like yours! I'm hot at night and I keep tossing & turning. It doesn't help that I'm a super light sleper, too.
